Citrus comprise an extremely wide range of fruiting trees and shrubs. Each species has its own unique size, fruiting periods, cold hardiness and climate adaptations.

Oranges, mandarins and kumquats are among the most cold hardy. When irrigating Citrus, water away from the trunk and apply near the tree's dripline. See photo.
